Halloween 2012

 This year was a low-maintenance year in the Saunders house.  We didn't even carve pumpkins.  We were given push-in faces, which the kids loved! Hazel didn't dress up but Ruby did have a pumpkin outfit from our neighbors.  She was not fond of the outfit, but I managed to keep the hat around her neck for this picture at least. 

Eliza was a puppy doctor and Owen was a pumpkin (Eliza's 2T costume...until she gets into princesses, he can keep wearing her old ones!)

As is tradition, Carter and his family came over.  Baby Marin was a pumpkin too!

To the end of the cul-de-sac!  (One day they will realize there is more candy out there.)

Our neighborhood has a little Halloween party that we have never made it to before.  The kids got to play in the moonbounce, swing at the pinata, and jump in leaves.

Pumpkin down!

 We love this sweet, silly boy!  He has an amazing vocabulary and quite the imagination. He even makes up words ("Mommy want a donk-e-donk?") He loves trains, cars, music, and his big sister, Wiza.  He is a very picky eater, likes to climb, and is a great snuggler.  We love watching him grow!
